Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge Cherry Bomb

Hi Everyone! Thanks for stopping by my blog and Happy 4th of July Weekend! It is time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Cherry Bomb. 

I hope you get a chance to play along. The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge.


Here's my take on the challenge. I used the colors for inspiration and added a flower on top!


So I fell in love with this stamp when I saw it on the Ellen Hutson site, Catherine Scanlon Clear Stamps, Cupcake. I colored the cupcake with Copic Markers and added glitter and clear and white sequins from Pretty Pink Posh


The frame is cut with the Scallop Frames Dies from Pretty Pink Posh and and sentiment is from the stamp set.

Fresh Floral Thank You

Hi Everyone! Hope you had a great weekend. I have a card to share today that I created with the new Taylored Expressions Fresh Floral Stamp Set and the coordinating Fresh Floral Dies.


I stamped the flowers and leaves with the new TE Dye Ink. Love the coverage! I stamped a sentiment from the Fresh Floral Stamp Set in Memento Luxe Wedding Dress Full Pad and embossed with white embossing powder. The sentiment is die cut with the Banner Stacklets 4.


I embossed around the edges with the new Garden Party Embossing Folder and added a few clear sequins. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

Paper Smooches Happy Birthday

I had a little time this weekend to play along with the Paper Smooches June Challenge: Layers. Adding layers makes for an easy challenge for me!  I am using one of my all time favorite Paper Smooches Stamps, Best Buds


I colored the image with Copic Markers and added a little glitter to the jar with  Zig Wink of Stella Pen in Clear. The image is die cut with the Best Buds Icon Dies. The background is embossed with the TE Bead Board Embossing Folder. 


I cut a triangle from white card stock and die cut the holes with the Paper Smooches Polka Dot Borders Dies and ran twine through the middle row of dots. The sentiment is from the PS Salutations Stamp Set.  The final touch is a few 4mm Clear Droplets from Pretty Pink Posh


Thanks for stopping by!

A Summer Hello

Happy Friday and thanks for stopping by today! I have a summer card to share today that I created for the Poppy Power June Challenge - Happy Mail. The challenge is to create a "just because" card and actually put it the mail. My card is for my mom. She loves sitting on the beach and reading a book.


I colored one of the images from the Best Day Ever Stamp Set with my Copic Markers. Behind the circle I add a layer of sand and a sentiment from the stamp set. 


I die cut the flip flops with the TE Little Bit - Flip Flops and finished the card off with rhinestones and twine.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a good weekend.

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Tasty Tropics

Hi Everyone! It is time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Tasty Tropics. 

I hope you get a chance to play along. The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge.


Here's my take on the challenge using the Simply Stamped - Pineapple from Taylored Expressions.


I watercolored the background behind the pineapple and cut the frame with the Frame in Frame 2 Cutting Plate. 


The flowers are die cut with the Bloomers 1 Die and the leaves with the Bloomers Greenery. I finished off the card with clear sequins and an enamel dot.
